People Teaching PeopleDuring the South End Stage at the Folk FestivalClick here to see festival scheduleFolk traditions evolve and emerge over time from people teaching people. The Folk Festival celebrates the music, dance, and art that have become cultural traditions. Much like a virus, ideas and cultural traditions spread through person-to-person transmission. This is why folk traditions from different places around the world are so unique.
Over time, technology has made traveling the world possible – at a faster and faster rate. The GPS is wondering how today’s technology, specifically YouTube, is changing the way Folk Traditions evolve.
GPS has curated a YouTube program in which “people are teaching people”.
Come experience these DANCE lessons from around the world and explore the past, present, and future of Folk.
